Delicious Sausage, Sage and Pumpkin Pasta (GF)
An easy, quick and delicious Sausage, Sage and Pumpkin Pasta (GF) dish that is perfect for a quick dinner for two or for a large family.
Serves: 2
  • 300g of pumpkin - cubed
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 12 tomatoes - cut in half
  • 10 sage leaves - 6 chopped and keep 4 full
  • 6 pork chipolata sausages
  • Olive Oil
  • 180g of wheat pasta or gluten-free pasta
  • Parmesan to sprinkle on top
  1. Preheat the oven to 200ÂșC
  2. Traybake
  3. In a baking dish place on the pumpkin, garlic, tomatoes, onions, chipolata sausages and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with the chopped sage leaves, add the full sage leaves (These are to top the dish with when serving) and season with salt and pepper. Place in the oven and bake until the pumpkin is cooked and the tomatoes are soft.
  4. The Pasta
  5. Cook the pasta in salted boiling water and then drain and keep aside. Keep ¾ cup of the pasta water to add to the sauce. (With the gluten-free pasta it is best to drizzle with some olive oil to make sure it doesn't go sticky or time it so that it is not sitting around too long).
  6. The Sauce
  7. When the pumpkin and tomatoes are ready to remove the tray and place the tomatoes and pumpkin in another dish and then place the sausages back in the oven until they are cooked or if they are to keep warm. Take a few spoonfuls of the pumpkin, 1 part of the onion and tomatoes and the garlic and place in a blender. Squeeze in the garlic clove (don't add in the skin) and 2 tablespoons of olive oil and mix in the mixer until it becomes a sauce.
  8. The Dish.
  9. Remove the sausages from the oven and slice into pieces. Place them back into the baking dish and add the pasta, the sauce, the pumpkin, onions and tomatoes and stir to coat the pasta. Place the pasta on the plate and top with parmesan cheese and the crispy sage leaves and enjoy all the flavours!
